8 The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder May 27, 1976 Glenville State offers summer course in metrics If you are "petrified of becoming metrified." Glenville State College will be offering a solution to your problem this summer. The Division of Fducation is offering a new course designed for both experienced and prospective mathematics teachers. It is entitled "Manipulative Math and Metrics." This course will stress the use of concrete manipulative materials in teaching mathematics from Nursery- Kindergarten through eighth grade. The particular emphasis will be on introducing the Metric System by involving students in the use of actual measuring equipment. No previous knowledge of tile Metric System is necessary. GSC president. Dr. D. Banks Wilburn, secured funding for the program partially from federal funds and partially from state funds, in order to offer students an opportunity to work with a wide variety el high quality equipment suited to all grade levels• The course will be conducted as a laboratory course, similar to a physics or chemistry laboratory. The principal objective will be to improve the methods of teaching basic camputa- tional skills and problem solving techniques to children. Instruction will begin with the use of manipulatives, :....`...;..;;....:.:..:............................:.:.:.::.............:......:.;.:.;.....:.:.: .:................................ .... . .... ........... ..... ........,. .... • °.°. .......... °.°.°.°°°...°°°°°...°,°, ...... .,° .,o ° ... • • ...... .. ..... . .... -. ,°.°.°.. °° ...... .°-.°.......°°............°°....° MOODY'S MOBILE HOMES Rt. 33-119 -- 4 miles west of Weston A Complete Selection of Quality Built Homes 12-wides 14-wldes double wides and modular on display Each home fully displayed and lighted for your shopping convenience OPEN FRIDAY TIL 8:00 PM Phone 269-1510 Member of W.Va. Mobile Home Association then progress through the talking and listening stage, the picture or semi-abstract stage, and end with the abstract stage. At this point children will be able to manipulate numbers and symbols in the "Old Math" traditions of learning their addition and subtraction combinations, and the times tables. The advantage of the laboratory approach is that children become interested and think that math is fun. They also begin to understand the "how" and "why" of arithmetic, and are not so fearful and hostile toward solving problems. Although commerical materials will be used in the course, students will be given opportunities to construct some of their own manipulatives. They will also have catalogs, professional magazines, posters, and pamphlets available for their use. The number of the course is Education 399-01, and will be offered for three semester hours credit from June 14 through July 14, from 10:00 to 11:50 in Room 101 of Clark Hall. The instructor of the course will be Dr. Theresa Gray, who has had several years experience in designing and supervising Mathematics Labora- tories. For further information, contact Dr. Gray, or Divison of Education Chairman, Dr. Gary Adkins at the college.
